International Master of Environmental Policy

General

Program Description

New economic opportunities in emerging economies and around the globe have brought complex environmental challenges—from increased air and water pollution to food security to energy and climate change. The Sanford School, in collaboration with the Nicholas School of the Environment, offers an international Master of Environmental Policy (iMEP) program at Duke Kunshan University.  This program prepares its graduates to meet these pressing challenges through effective policy solutions drawn from an array of disciplines.

The four-semester, 16-course International Master's in Environmental Policy (iMEP) at Duke Kunshan University is designed to meet the growing global need for leaders who are versed in both Chinese and international environmental issues and policies. 

The program is the first in the world to draw together the important core requirements in environmental management and public policy. These include economics, political science, sociology, history, law, statistics and environmental science. It is based in China. Many iMEP students spend a semester at Duke University's Durham, North Carolina, campus and take classes at the Nicholas School of the Environment and the Sanford School of Public Policy.

Duke University is ranked #3 in the world for environmental management and policy by US News and World Report.
